Manchester City’s last-16 second leg Champions League tie against Real Madrid on August 7 will go ahead at the Etihad Stadium despite the new 14-day quarantine rule imposed on people travelling from Spain to the UK, according to AS.

The decision, which was imposed on Saturday, means those coming back from Spain will have to self­ isolate for two weeks upon their return, however according to the UK’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, the new travel and quarantine restrictions excludes sporting events.
